Columbus Networking Calendar Feed

Calendar Example

Our events list can show up in your calendar on both your desktop and mobile device automatically. Using the iCalendar standard, we maintain a current iCalendar feed of our events list you can subscribe to via traditional calendar apps like Google Calendar. Directions for Google Calendar and IOS devices are listed below. But, all desktop calendars and other mobile devices support ways to subscribe to iCalendar feeds.

Once subscribed, new events or updates will be added to your calendar automatically. While old events are removed automatically. Each event includes a link to more information about the event and where you can register to attend the event. Most events are free to attend.
